A short animation made for the “Hadrian” Exhibition in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, December 2015.

The film shows the bronze casting process in an artistic yet simple method, a combination of stop motion and 2D animation.
The preparation process included a research and a constant dialogue with the curator and the restoration department of the museum as well as a visit in a bronze casting workshop. The head used in the film was a plaster replica of the original Hadrian’s bronze statue found in Tel-Shalem, Israel, 117-138 CE.
